A lot goes into properly installing a security camera. First, you need to pick the right type for the job. Do you need a dome or bullet model? Point/tilt/zoom or fisheye lens?
You also need to make sure you place the camera in a proper location, ensuring there are no obstructions and plenty of light if necessary. It’s also important to make sure wiring is properly secured and hidden.
